Default "Bernard Hopkins vs Chad Dawson II.....Silence of the Lambs"

I was down southend of Liverpool today..? Thought about getting my hair cut..? i never usually go to the black barbers you see..? i just shave my hair myself..? like a scuff. As i got off the bus, and approached the barbers at the last moment i decided not to enter the shop.

I have had allot on my mind of late, so i decided to just walk the streets. Just go on a nice relaxed, nonchalant walk.

Many thoughts entered my mind..?

I walked from smith down road right onto lodge lane..? As i got on this road, i remember that documentary that iflim done..? with Tony Bellew, and i specifically remember Tony Bellew's comments on Bernard Hopkins.

"If you think where i am from is rough..? Where Bernard Hopkins from is a whole new ball game..? there taking the likes of me as prisoners on there, and having me work for them. Where i am from..? People are just saying hello and waving goodbye. Where he's from..? There locking you up in rooms the size of cages, yano..? that’s how you’re raised"


[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okkEbHe9tMY[/ame]


And that’s when i got thinking about Chad Dawson vs Bernard Hopkins.

Chad Dawson has all the physical skills to beat any fighter at 175 and 168..? his weakness is his passive mentality. He does not lack confidents at all, and he is no coward..? When its time to rumble, he rumbles.

But..? Chad Dawson does not know how good he is, or how good he can be. I have watched his fights, and it’s only when he becomes pissed off, or backed into a corner..? and his corner shows real urgency..? That’s when he switches...? he will pick up the pace, or just start simply unloading with more bombs.

But..? you cannot do that all the time at elite level, and in 12 round fights.

He is pretty much like Lennox Lewis or a Chris Eubank, but even worse..!!! Chad Dawson is content with just doing enough, and he fights within himself allot! Allot!!

These types of fighters need a spark, which sets them off.

Bernard Hopkins knows this, and has stated this in his own words. But Bernard Hopkins has also pointed out that Chad Dawson can switch..? and Bernard Hopkins wants that guy.

"And like i have said before..? Bernard Hopkins has brought more passion out of Chad Dawson..? and that’s what i wanted to see from him. Some people call it being confused..? Chad Dawson is no novice boxer, he is a former world champion, has fought amateur and professional..? I don't think he is confused............this guy knows how to fight, give fighters in general credit"

Bernard Hopkins..? Mentally gets to fighters..? i wouldn’t say he scares them like Mike Tyson or Sonny Liston did. But he plants ideas and motives in there minds..? He is a clever man..? when it comes to street psychology.

First time around Hopkins tried to simply get gangster and intimidate Dawson..? but that did not work.

So now..? The silent treatment.

And i give Hopkins credit...? I like it.

Because nobody knows what Bernard Hopkins is thinking? Some people think he is unconfident, others think..? he is going to pull out of the fight.? there is a weird feeling about the build up to this fight.

And this is not physically going to affect Chad Dawson..? But mentally..? He is going to be thinking and pondering about certain things.

Bernard Hopkins knows Chad Dawson is confident, has no fear of him. Is training harder than ever..? He is not pondering about anything.

But..? Chad Dawson and his camp..? are not sure this fight will go ahead 100%, there not sure that Hopkins is training better than ever, people don't know weather something shady will happen..? Maybe Hopkins has afew entourage members/street people, that are going to try and spook Dawson.

Nobody knows, what’s going to happen..? in the remaining days of this fight.

Its professional boxing, the underworld and boxing has always been closely related..? all the way back to the Italian mafia!!

All over the world it is the same!!!

These last remaining days..? Even myself i have been looking over my shoulder..? when i am walking the streets.

Nobody is safe.

"I personally think its the end for Bernard Hopkins"

Interesting read as always PK

I think Dawson will win comfortably & Hopkins might retire afterwards

I've never seen someone use so many question marks, yet ask so few questions.

This thread would have no cohesion if it wasn't for this introduction part, thankyou for sharing.

****in' great thread once again from primadonna. This is how you sell a fight, this is called charisma.

By the way, I think Dawson will win. Bernard Hopkins is aiming to do something extraordinary, at 47 years old. If he does it... my goodness. I think this will be a challenge too great for him to overcome. If he does it though, what will the boxing world say? He is not a normal individual either way.

I think Dawson will be too sharp, too big, too quick, too strong and "too good"

The Pascal fights were Hopkins last hurrah...
